In our half year interim report, we forecast full year revenue to be in the range of £575m to £605m and adjusted profit before tax to be in the range of £127m to £147m.  We continue to expect growth in both revenue and profit for this financial year and now expect full year revenue to be in the range of £585m to £610m and adjusted profit before tax to be in the range of £135m to £150m. Statutory profit before tax is expected to be in the range of £145m to £160m.

The preliminary full year results for the year ending 30th June 2018 will be released on 26th July 2018.

*    Adjusted profit before tax and prior year restatements

 

In the trading update issued on 10th May 2017, the cumulative profit before tax for the first three quarters of the financial year 2017 was reported as £69.3m. The results of the spatial measurement business have been excluded as this business has been reclassified as a discontinued activity, giving rise to an increase in profit before tax of £0.8m.

 

The adjustment to statutory profit relates to the accounting treatment of certain forward currency contracts used as hedging instruments which do not qualify for hedge accounting as they do not meet the hedge effectiveness criteria set out in the International Accounting Standard IAS39 'Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement'. The board deems that the adjusted profit before tax better reflects the underlying performance of the Group. The following table reconciles statutory profit before tax to adjusted profit before tax:
